On Monday 23rd October, UpRisers from Bedfordshire and London took part in a unique experience day with AstraZeneca in Luton.  

 

 

The day, entitled ‘AzPiring Professionals’, gave UpRisers the opportunity to network with senior officials from across the organisation and hear first-hand about life working in the pharmaceutical industry.

 

“I am currently studying at University and so the opportunity to visit a potential employer and hear from them what they are looking for is great!” – Farid (UpRiser)

 

The day covered a range of topics from drug development, sales and marketing to presentation skills. During the day, alumni from the Leadership Programme in Bedford and Luton, as well as alumni and current participants from Fastlaners in London were also able to receive advice on how to pursue a career in pharmaceuticals in the future.
